The Present and the Future


Innovation Center

Innovation at MUSC is an ongoing process. In 1996, the South Carolina Research Authority and MUSC teamed up to form The Innovation Center. It consists of four start-up companies, all of which are based on technology invented at MUSC. The companies are: Immunologix, Microbial Fuel Cell Technologies, Neurological Testing Services, and Vortex Biotechnology Corp. All of these companies have taken MUSC innovation into the twenty-first century Indeed, innovation at MUSC has most certainly entered the digital age. From its early beginnings as the first Medical college in the deep south, MUSC has continuously strived towards significant advances in the field of medicine. This tradition of innovation is one that shows no signs of slowing.
